Slate just came out with a post calling Friday Night Lights the best show on television and I could not agree any more. For a long time now I’ve been telling pretty much anyone that would listen that this the case. The writing, the acting, the storylines, the complexity…unlike most of the rest of television (see Deal or No Deal) these elements are both intelligent and entertaining on FNL.
I wrote about it once already here after buying the first season DVD. At that time I didn’t know if it would live up to my high expectations, but I can now definitively confirm that it did indeed (and then some).
If you don’t want to buy the DVD, no worries. You can catch full episodes from both season 1 and 2 on Hulu for free.
And the best news of all? The Dillon Panthers will be coming back for a third season. Please watch it so I can be saying the same thing again a year from now about season 4.
